IMO you can't get that "Muscle Car" sound without headers. So staying legal and getting a good sound kinda counter one another.

Maybe a muffler delete? Glass-packs? Then there's also the "Drone" you have to worry about, which I've read all you have to do is get a resonated X-pipe. There's just too many variables AHHHHHH!!!

Muffler delete! Cheap, warranty intact, shed a few pounds, not too aggressive with normal driving, and sounds very muscular! Given what you're looking for, I think this option has winning all over it!

SW Works Retro Chambered Catback + Cats Delete .. You don't need anything else, its loud enough for a muscle car with a true muscle car sound .. Upon your next service, just fix the Catalytic back so you won't lose your warranty ...

This is as loud as it gets with just a cat back. I freaking love it!

you cant have those prereq's and then ask how to make your car sound bad a$$.... you can make it sound "ok" with those requirements.

Tons of stuff, check the exhaust sound clips thread on here.

Question, what can you 'legally' do with exhaust in California? I'd advise you keep the original whatever in case you need to revert back. That state seems very tight on their vehicle modification laws. Here in AR it's, "you want to do that? COOL"

+3 on the Retro Chambered SW. Loud when you want them to be (WOT) but just a nice growl at lower rpms. No drone
